    You can already do special characters, and in some cases it is infuriating. no thanks.

    I'm guessing all of the downvotes are related to fear of people making cryptic names that are difficult to work with. But the at-symbol (@) and period in particular are important for the common practice of using one's email as a username. This should be supported.

    Supporting emails as usernames is a distinct issue... It has some overlap, but includes different considerations such as length. And/or whether to require that emails as usernames match (perhaps automatically) the actual verified email. So, I'm going to try to get that in as a different issue if I can't find it already here.
